The franchise was rebooted in 2014 with the release of ''Ju-on: The Beginning of the End'', which alters much of the background story. Shimizu did not have a hand in the production, nor did Mrs. Takako Fuji as Kayako, [[TheOtherDarrin who was replaced by Misaki Saisho]]. It was followed in 2015 with the release of ''Ju:on: The Final'', which, as the name suggests, serves as the franchise's GrandFinale. A crossover with ''Literature/TheRing'' series will be released in 2016, with Kayako again played by Mrs. Fuji.

Following the success of the two TV movies, screenwriter Hiroshi Takahashi helped Shimizu develop ''Ju-on'' as a theatrical feature. The resulting film, ''Ju-on: The Grudge'', was released in 2003. Shortly after, the US [[ForeignRemake remake rights]] were purchased, with Shimizu himself attached to direct. A sequel, ''Ju-on: The Grudge 2'', was released later that year. In 2004, the US remake, ''TheGrudge'', was released.

Added DiffLines:

** In the reboots, Kayako wasn't always like this. Post-mortem Kayako will speak like this whenever others are lucky enough to meet her in her human form. In contrast, while in pre-mortem, Kayako's a certified GenkiGirl.


Added DiffLines:

* GenkiGirl: The films have several.
** Kanna.
** Tomoka. She's a presenter, after all. Her boyfriend, Noritaka, also has shades of this.
** Mirai.
** In the reboots, believe it or not, Kayako! At least before [[spoiler: her inability to have a child screwed her up and made her a mild AxCrazy.]]

* BigSisterInstinct: Mai will stop at nothing in search for her missing sister, Yui. Even when Kyosuke already tells her to ''get off the Nerima house case as far as she can''.



** In the fourth movie, Keisuke discovers several letters addressed to "Tokunaga" inside the Nerima house. Those letters are in fact the same ones that Kazumi took from the mailbox in the third film. Since almost a decade has passed between the two films (evidenced by the appearance of Chiharu, who's Izumi's high school friend), either they're the product of the house's time-travel thingy or people are just too afraid to enter the house and remove the letters.



* CreepyChild: Toshio. Enough said. Also, [[spoiler:the reincarnated child-form of [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Kayako/child who is possessed by Kayako]] ([[MindScrew it's never made exactly clear]])]] at the end of the second theatrical movie.

** In ''Black Ghost'', there's something...off about Fukie, even before [[spoiler: her EvilTwin takes over.]] Once [[spoiler: the latter event happens, well, the creepiness turns UpToEleven.]]
** In ''The Final'', there's Ena, who's like Fukie v.2, from having psychic powers, to not talking much, and, eventually, [[spoiler: becoming possessed by a spirit.]]



** Reo in ''The Final''. [[spoiler: Kayako breaks her spine by slowly moving her downward.]]

* CuteMonsterGirl: Kayako. Toshio, too, though he's more on the adorable side (he's about 6, mind you).

* EvilLaugh: Kayako, combined with [[spoiler: DieLaughing]] in the seventh film, [[spoiler: after Takeo found out that she has been lying to him about Toshio's parentage.]] Yes, ''Kayako''.
** Reo and her mother, [[spoiler: after their death]], do this to Mai in the eighth film. Combined with the lighting that turns their faces into ScaryFlashlightFace, [[UncannyValley it's incredibly unsettling]].



* EvilTwin: Fukie has one in ''Black Ghost''.



* FullFrontalAssault: In ghost form, Toshio is either this or he's wearing an underwear. It's played for creepiness, since he's a pale-white young boy.



* GigglingVillain: In the one of the last shots of the series, [[spoiler: Yui]] does this in front of [[spoiler: Mai]], shortly before [[spoiler: she's fully consumed by Kayako]].

** Kiwako does this in ''Black Ghost'', [[spoiler: with her decision to kill Fukie's mortal body. No, it won't stop Fukie's twin rampage. It ''worsens'' it.]]



** Done in ''The Final'', when Mai discovers [[spoiler: Sota lying dead in their apartment.]]



** Ena in ''The Final''. She is able to share her memories just by other people touching her.

* RoomFullOfCrazy: After [[HeroicBSOD the curse leaves a drastic effect on her mental state]], Izumi becomes a recluse, rarely leaving her bedroom, the windows of which she covers with newspaper, and keeps the curtains drawn. Repeated again in ''The Beginning of the End'', with Rina.



* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: Kiwako decides to commit suicide alongside her daughter, Fukie's mortal body, which contains her other daughter's spirit (Fukie's spirit having been expelled) to end her rampage. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Unfortunately, it only succeeds in killing the mortal body, as her spirit is able to roam free]].]]



** Done in ''White Ghost''. The film is set in two different timelines, though it's quite easy to distinguish the stories. "Akane" and the epilogue is set a decade after the murders; everything else is set before or after the murders.
